Waiter # 7 (illustrated by Lars Brown)

Throughout the centuries Dream and Hob meet in a pub to talk about the events of Hob’s life that have lead him to that particular moment, both his successes and his failures as well as the loss of loved ones and how he is coping with his long life.

In the 1800’s prior to their gathering Johanna Constantine bribed the waiter at a pub to let her know when Dream and Hob meet at the pub.

On the day of their arrival this waiter stands outside the pub and shakes a white cloth to signal that Johanna and her associates can come in and speak with Dream and Hob.

He is paid handsomely.

This waiter appears in Sandman # 13, on page 17.

Lars did a great job with this portrait. I like that he captured the period of time this character was alive in his hairstyle and clothing. The clothing in particular is a subtle reminder that this character is from the 1800’s. I really like this portrait of a pretty minor character.
